About

Gordon Parks, the photographer behind this image was an active artist in the mid-twentieth century, often documenting events and people associated with the Civil Rights Movement. The woman in this photo was, Ella Watson, who worked as a cleaner in government buildings in Washington D.C. The juxtapositions of the cleaning tools she's holding and the American flag behind her demonstrates the irony of a "free country" such as the United States still upholding segregation. Watson's straight-faced disposition mirrors that of the famous American Gothic (1930).

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
